PokerTracker 3 has a Tournament Auto Detection mechanism which is a major enhancement of tournament classification and detection.
Tournaments are analyzed as they are imported (or afterwards) and tournament type, buy-in, results and prizes are detected automatically where possible.
In many cases tournament summary requests will no longer be necessary unless detailed result data on opponents is required.
You now have complete control over tournament types and can change them however you like.
Filtering has also been upgraded to utilise the new types and this allows much finer filtering.
Important Note on Tournament Auto-Detection
Auto-Detection is a process that will be continually improved. Not all tournament types can be supported in the auto-detection process, and as sites change their tournament structures the rules will need to be updated.
For some sites and tournament types results will be very accurate but for others the information in the hand history files does not allow full automatic detection. Detection rules will be automatically updated each time you start PokerTracker 3.
We urge you to help us improve these results by reporting incorrect detection results.
Please attach hand history (and summary) files for tournaments which are not detected correctly to a Support ticket and tell us exactly what type each tournament actually is.
